Located in the state's largest city, Burlington, the University of Vermont (UVM) is home to 9,970 undergraduates, 1,317 graduate students, 454 medical students, and 1,364 part and full time faculty. UVM is the fifth oldest university in New England (founded in 1791) and is Vermont's land-grant institution. UVM received its first Tree Campus USA designation in 2013, after an effort by a group of seniors in the Rubenstein School of Environment & Natural Resources established a Campus Tree Committee and eventually led to the submission of the Tree Campus application.
